Or who broke their teeth on it, when they bit down instead of sucking on it (it is a hard candy stick about 20 mm. across and 200 mm long, white covered by red, with Brighton in red letters running through the candy 1-2 mm. from the lower edge.

Dear Albert,

      I should hope so!  Shocked
I think you meant 'dyeing' [tintura]. 
The verb 'dying' means 'mortecino'.  Roll Eyes Grin

Best,
Joey

Dear Albert,

     Oh.  Embarrassed
Possibly 'mortecino' is Italiano and not Espanol.
Best,
Joey
